On Thursday, the Prefect of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Nikola Dobroslavić, sent a proposal to the Chief of the Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia, Davor Božinović, for the introduction of stricter epidemiological links in order to preserve tourism.
The Prefect thanked Božinović and all members of the Staff for their excellent work in combating the coronavirus pandemic in our country and pointed out that we must react urgently because the countries that represent our emitting markets put us on restrictive lists.
"These days we are witnessing the placing of Croatia on restrictive lists by some important countries in tourism for us, such as Slovenia, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Latvia, Ireland, and there are indications that Germany is preparing such a thing. However, along the whole coast, the epidemiological situation is very good, we assume that such decisions were influenced by figures at the state level. From the data available to us, the conclusion is that a large number of infected people in the continental part of Croatia is the result of gatherings in nightclubs, weddings and other ceremonies with a large number of participants. We believe that it is possible and necessary to limit these,” stated Dobroslavić.
He added that “We ask the headquarters to consider the introduction of stricter restrictions for such events, because we believe that the price we could pay in tourism is too high in relation to the price that our fellow citizens would suffer."
